Must have guide Oct 24, 2009
Invaluable guide to Vancouver city and surrounding area. Led us to numerous points of interest.
Book not shipped Jun 10, 2009
The supplier did not have the book available and issued credit to my credit card. If a supplier does not have the product, it should not be offered and waste my time trying to buy it!
Vunderful Vancouver Sep 29, 2008
I went to a book store and compared several Vancouver guides. This book was easily the best. I then saved some $s by purchasing at this site (shame on me for not putting money into the local economy!). Marvelous maps. Good guides. Pretty photos. Also contains details of day trips from Vancouver.
I then travelled to Vancouver with my guide book (also Victoria & Whistler). A very beautiful city surrounded by mountains and sea. I can now understand why many people say it's the worlds best city to work and play in. I might go back, permanently!!
